White Couple Tortured and Murdered by 5 blacks - Why No National Outrage? Why No Hate Crime?

Trayvon Martin was shot after he attacked George Zimmerman and the black racist leaders like Al Sharpton are outraged and call for protests.... why no outrage when 5 blacks torture and kill an innocent young white couple?

from The New Order:

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — It was the kind of crime that strikes terror into the hearts of  parents everywhere. A bright young couple were carjacked after a Saturday night date and murdered in the most brutal way imaginable.
Christopher Newsom, 23, was tied up and raped, shot in the back of the head and then dragged to a railway track and set on fire.
His girlfriend, 21-year-old University of Tennessee student Channon Christian’s fate was even more horrific. Her death came only after hours of torture, during which time she was raped and savaged with a broken chair leg.
She was beaten in the head and a household bleach was poured down her throat and over her bleeding and battered genital area in an attempt by her attackers to cover any evidence of rape — all while she was still alive.
Defense lawyers were quick to say that some of the accused dated white women and even prosecutors denied any racial overtones.
"There is absolutely no proof of a hate crime," said John Gill, special counsel to Knox County District Attorney Randy Nichols.
"It was a terrible crime, a horrendous crime, but race was not a motive. We know from our investigation that the people charged in this case were friends with white people, socialized with white people, dated white people. [sic]
But that hasn’t stopped conservative critics from blaming liberal bias in the US mainstream media for failing to cover the attacks.
Columnist and right-wing blogger Michelle Malkin weighed in, saying: "This case — an attractive white couple murdered by five black thugs — doesn’t fit any political agenda.
"It’s not a useful crime. Reverse the races and just imagine how the national media would cover the story of a young black couple murdered by five white assailants.’
Country music singer Charlie Daniels pointed out the media frenzy that came after a black woman accused three white members of the Duke University lacrosse team of raping her.
The players were later cleared after their accuser changed her story.
But Daniels said on his website: "If this had been white-on-black crime, Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson and their ilk would have descended on Knoxville like a swarm of angry bees."
Much of the criticism over the scant coverage of the murders has been on the internet through blogs and websites.
University of Tennessee law professor Glenn Reynolds said the American media has a "template" for covering white-on-black crime, but not the reverse.
"I think it would have gotten a lot of national play faster if it had been a black couple kidnapped and killed by five white people," he told the local paper in Knoxville.
